Goals for July - December
I know my reading will pick up as the Mock Printz book club and Mock Newbery book clubs pick up.  I will continue to review my Printz reads here but my Newbery reviews will go to St. Joseph County Public Library Mock Newbery blog, which I'm co-hosting.  I also have some blog tours scheduled.

My goal will be to post 3 reviews a week as well as the Sunday Salon and some huge book on Saturdays.

Did you make any blog goals?  How did you do?  
Will you be changing them for the rest of the year?  

Link to your goals in the comments and I promise to check them out!
